Trousdale County, Hartsville, Tennessee Personal Injury Attorney

Nestled in the northern portion of Middle Tennessee, this rural county has a current population just over 7000 scattered over its beautiful hills and lush valleys. Farming, largely tobacco, was the economic base that formed this county, and it is still prevalent today. Many area families came to this fertile land from Virginia and North Carolina when their tobacco-growing families could not subdivide their lands any further. Tennessee was a new state looking for settlers, and this area of the Highland Rim was an ideal location to build a homestead.  The county seat is located in Hartsville, and other communities include Barthelia, Beech Grove, Cato, Gravel Hill, Halltown, Kings (Beasley’s Bend), Providence, Puryears Bend, Shady Grove, Templow, Walnut Grove, and Willard.

Hartsville, the seat of justice and the county’s only town, began in 1797 as Donoho’s Mill. Charles and Sarah (Brooks) Donoho, and James and Sarah (Hamilton) Hart, and their children, were among the settlers at this place in 1797, the Donoho’s on the east side of West Fork of Goose Creek, the Hart on the west side on the same stream. The Donoho’s operated the mill, and nearby on the Cumberland River the Harts, in 1798, opened a ferry, known for well over a half a century as Hart’s Ferry. In 1800, Charles Donoho sold his mill to James Hart. Within a few years after 1797, Harts Race Track, for racing became noted. This, plus the opening of the post office in 1807, along with Andrew Allison’s and George Blacks store, put Hartsville on the map indefinitely. In 1817, the State Legislature officially declared Hartsville an ‘established’ Tennessee town.
